  1. Values are means and standard deviations (SD) for normally distributed continuous data, medians and interquartile range (IQR) for asymmetrically distributed continuous data and absolute frequency and proportions for categorical data.
  2. GFR: Glomerular filtration rate. MDRD-IDMS: Modification of Diet in Renal Disease-Isotopic Dilution Mass Spectrometry. VDP: Voltage–Duration Product. cf-PWV: carotid femoral Pulse Wave Velocity. ba-PWV: brachial ankle Pulse Wave Velocity.
